and provide a road map for how far the united states will go in defense of israel. we will get insights to all of these challenges for president obama with the former ambassador to israel, martin indyk who joins us from washington where he is the vice president and director for foreign policy at the brookings institution. ambassador indyk, good to have you back on the program, sir. >> thanks, tavis, good to be with you. tavis: i guess the start is whether or not i have overstated the case. there are some who believe as i intimated a moment ago that the president's very presence in israel that's to say, our president, barack obama, signals to some there might be renewed vigor, renewed possibility for peace between the israelis and palestinians and there are many more others, perhaps, as i read, who think it's a false hope, that the expectations on this need to be tamped down. where does ambassador indyk stand? >> certainly the white house has been trying to tamp down those expectations, including the president himself.

new ideas. we were not always playing defense. sometimes we were playing offense. tavis: tell me about the new rules. >> i said i did not want to cram everything into a list. i hate those. say a number of seems did emerge. did emerge. we adapt all the time. we are so busy all the time. is there a system? the answer is yes. was sweeping through that a lot of families were doing, and the idea is you need to focus on the team. you need to be able to respond and real time quickly. meeting. family we asked three questions. what worked well this week? what did not work well, and what did we agree to work on in the week ahead? we have them pick their own rewards and punishment. it sounds crazy. i would get to take my own punishment? >> here is the latest research that kids to set their own goals, and evaluate their own work, they are actually building of their prefrontal cortex. it is giving them the skills they need later in life. it is incredibly valuable. the old days when mom or dad could tell you what to do, i try as a parent. it does not work. outside and take the switch from the tree.
